Advent & Christmas at St Bride's

Since I took over as Rector at the start of November, everyone has told me what an amazing and magical experience it is to celebrate Christmas at St Bride's.

There is something for everyone during December, with our many carol services and seasonal concerts. So do please come along - we shall be delighted to welcome you, whether you come alone or with family and friends.

Join us to celebrate this wonderful season, to sing glorious carols, and to share the magic of the Christmas story.

'They did not understand him' (Luke 9: 45)

In our world of internet access and global connectivity we expect instant answers. We don't like to wait and we easily lose patience. But instant answers aren't always available. Jesus only gradually reveals to his friends what is going to happen to him, and even then they do not fully understand who he is. We have to learn to grow into our Christian faith, understanding more the mystery of God's revelation of himself, and that there is more to our existence than this life. But it takes time...

Lord, help me on my journey and open my mind and heart to understand more of your gift of love, until all is made clear in your kingdom. Amen.
